          Wonderful reception, made to feel very welcome, and the loveliest management team. Would stay again, clean, spacious and not too far for a nice liesurely walk to the esplanade and casino. Big spacious pool, great for excercising.

          Friendly Staff. Clean room. Enough facility. Not so far fom city center.

          Hair dryer didn't work. There was no room keeper. Sometimes we couldn't get hot water from the shower.

          we stayed there for 5 days and there was no housekeeping service, no new towels, no additional toilet rolls or tissues or shampoo, bath gel, etc. the staff said we need to pay additional $55 for housekeeping service. The umbrella is not available to borrow if we go out for a day trip. That's very ridiculous!

          modern furnishings, huge balcony, good location, washer/dryer in apt, great value!

          small ants found throughout (but this might be inevitable b/c of the tropical conditions in northern queensland)

        • Family with children

          Our modern suite was definitely a "home-away-from-home". While travelling as a family can be challenging, there was more than enough space to accommodate everyone's needs. Our friendly manager upgraded our booking to ensure our stay was first rate! Many thanks!!

          A little bit of a walk to the city centre - however this allows you to appreciate the beautiful Esplanade boardwalk. Hotel is really close to the children's park which is a bonus!

          Room looked modern and TV was nice and large; dishwasher/laundry/cooking facilities were good (except for no tongs). Lady at reception was very friendly; free undercover parking

          It wasn't clean as we expected so didn't enjoy our stay as much. There were ants around ... maybe it's common in cairns? Kettle was dirty. Pool had leaves it in. Lounge was a bit dirty and smelly so we didn't end up using it. Informed receptionist at check-out about the lounge and she was very apologetic and said we should have let her know straight away and she would move us straight away to a new room.
